Believe or NOT to believe old folks' tale??
Honestly, it's better to believe and follow.. after all, it's only a short period of suffering.
What happen if you do get to face rheumatism and other problems as one ages.. not worth it.
I heard of horror stories from people who showered and wash hair every day just like any other day during confinement.. and now, suffering from this silly wind in the head and body. Suffering from migraine and other times, can't explain but the wind just moves around in the body causing discomfort. Especially during rainy days.
Think about it. Your call?
actually it's alright to bath but maybe not everyday... esp washing hair... that day just tok to my CL.. she said can bath as long as we really DRY up ourselves... esp if we're breastfeeding baby... i'm sure mummies here wont want your baby to suck your sweat with breast milk right??
i will try not to wash hair as long as possible but as for bathing, i will bath as i wanna try BF-ing baby... =D
i know i'm very stubborn.. but stubborn in a quiet way..
i bath when i was in the hospital... every 2 day wah my hair... cannot stand so hot and sticky.. i also want to be clean as i breastfeeding,,,,
my CL-to-be told me as long as we wipe dry dry after bathing and take more tonic during confinement, it's okay to bathe and even wash hair...
I wiped with wet towel cos I was super kia see with my c-sec wound. But for hair I used the dry shampoo. Very useful, got rid of all the oily feeling in my hair. Started to bath in full spray of water after 3weeks. My hubby was the one who stressed the no shower!
after I washed my hair, I rubbed some cognac/VSOP to the scalp (those that comes with the hamper and nobody wants to drink type) and blow dry. very shiok
After 4days then I finally manage to pee abit. (so pain!) Then can discharge.
Anyway, I bath everyday using the water boiled with chinese herbs.
And wash my hair twice per week but without shampoo.
I bathe and wash my hair during alternate day, really will die if dont bathe.
But i did not bathe when in hospital, did not even brush my teeth and wash my face, only want to lie in bed coz wound super painful even with painkiller
Well, just to add to mummies' resources.. I was reading up online about these things and was preparing to buy packs of herbal bath for my confinement in April 2013, when I found that there are confinement shower gels and shampoos around!
Some links to online shops (mostly in SG):

I'm gonna buy a bottle to try them out, ahead of my confinement, to see if I like the smell and if they are indeed as warming as they claim to be. Will post after I try!
